To complete Schreker's operatic legacy, I have uploaded the 1984 ORF broadcast of Das Spielwerk (1915). This is a substantially revised version (in one act) of Das Spielwerk und die Prinzessin (1908-12) to the extent that it can properly by considered a separate work.

The ORF performance is excellent and I have had to spend a considerable time working on this recording, which came to me in a large number of randomly-ordered files with substantial gaps at either end ...

 Roll Eyes

but hopefully everything should now run smoothly. I have made a break at an appropriate juncture roughly half-way through to allow for members (like me) who like to transfer recordings to disc.

Here is the vocal score - http://imslp.org/wiki/Das_Spielwerk_(Schreker,_Franz)

The original version in a prologue and two acts is, of course, available in an extremely good performance on CPO -
